This Actually Happened

The strangest clouds of dust one has seen for a while.

Latest Yoga Pose

I've been beyond the blog cosmos for a week: Boston Marathon, hiding under the boat tarp, etc., etc.  The FBI 'thermal heat' video of Suspect #2 in the boat is like one of the strangest avant-garde films imaginable.

And so, yes, had my first yoga class yesterday; BV and I did this.   I discovered I breathe in a manner that is completely back to front.  Glad to know I *can* breathe, though.

Boy with Rabbit

Okay:  simply one of my favorite photographs in my entire collection.   Always has been; always will be.  The boy's composure; the bow tie, the buttons on the pants; the chair; the backdrop; the rabbit's mad eye looking out at us.

Beastly Ephemera of San Francisco

These bestial little pieces of sticker art, all about 5 or 6 inches high, have been showing up recently in the Mission, on Valencia Street and elsewhere, usually near ground level.  Maker unknown.  Have to say I like um.  Llama and fox the most.  They've got a certain street pathos-- a certain vulnerability, despite the muck and degradation of their circumstances.  The panda looks rather too much like someone I know--someone smarmy and self-satisfied. 

Grandville, yes; Daumier, also yes.  I took the photos.
